Greetings: The middle of the road may seem like a safe place to travel, but the middle of the road is where they plant the landmines. When we were in the far away places employed by good old Uncle Sam years ago; we were taught to walk off the road and any known trails. Ol’ Charlie, as he was affectionately known, was very adept at knowing where the right places to plant bombs for the optimal affect. If we avoid problems by walking the middle of the road we will eventually discover it is a self-destructive course. No one can maintain a natural position on everything just ask any politician, they spend much of their time there. The middle may seem safe at first glance but rest assured satan’s favorite course is the middle of the road. Getting off course can be just as dangerous; it is always wise to have a good moral compass to guide you on your way. We must keep the needle pointing towards God at all times to avoid getting lost. The path best traveled by Gods people is the one clearly defined by scripture. Another trick we used was to walk in the footsteps of the man in front of you; this way you were sure not to step on any landmines. We can stay safe on our journey in this life if we lean to walk in the footsteps of Christ. This world is called a jungle and its borders aren’t always clearly visible, walking where Christ walked will keep you safe spiritually. We were not always the best at walking the trails in far away lands so many years ago but with the right leader who knows the lay of the land, we knew we could come home safe. Christ is our leader in this world and he knows how to get us from point A to point B but if we don’t follow his instructions, it is at our own peril.
